If I may paraphrase an old Far side comic, it would appear that John Kasich is out standing in his field or so he would have us think.
It is a shame that he has turned out the way he is. I used to have a great deal of respect for the man, until he ran for president. Then he became very angry because candidate Trump beat him badly.
The truth of the matter is that Donald Trump beat him fair and square. He said that he would build a fence on our southern border. Kasich said he would do the same thing everyone else did, nothing.
The fact is that there were but two candidates that said anything at all about stemming the flow of illegal aliens across the border. As it turned out, when all the rest fell by the wayside, there were but two left. Both wanted to stop the flow of illegal aliens. They were the only two who did.
The flat out truth is that the Republicans never presented a better candidate. They, all of them, have nothing to blame but themselves. Donald Trump saw what the people wanted. He knew what needed to be done to improve things. Then that was what he promised. Then, unlike the others, he actually carried through with the promises, this ever though there were some in his own party who fought him.
What Kasich must realize is that when you don’t want the things the voters want, you stand a good chance of losing, and he did. Not only did he lose but he lost badly. Apparently, he didn’t get the message.
Now, instead of learning, he has become a belligerent never-Trumper. As I said, he has become a disappointment. He did look like a good Republican. Now, he seems to be another one of those guys who tries to please everyone. So he stands out in the field, at a crossroad like the scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz” pretending that all roads lead to the great Oz.
Only the road is not made of gold bricks and none of them lead to the land of Oz. He prefers the likes of Biden over President Trump and that says a lot about him, all bad.
